Brian Road in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

Nico van der Meulen Architects transformed what was originally a 1970s house into a home ideal for the 21st century.  The architectural firm created an atrium and a moat around the hall and dining room, with a curtain of water falling past a cut-out in the atrium wall.  The end result is a beautiful breakfast garden to the east of the kitchen, overlooking the moat and water feature.  The family and dining room opens onto a spacious 13 m x 6 m lanai through frame less folding doors – an excellent idea as this doubles the space available for entertaining during the long South African summers.  The interior walls were removed to create a spectacular double volume living area and to form a more seamless floor plan.  The roof over the lanai is suspended from a two-storey-high beam traversing the pool.  The outcome is a contemporary home that is open-plan with north-facing layout ideal for family living and entertaining.

Casa Lama in Mallorca, Santa Ponsa

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Located on the rocky coast of the Balearic Island of Mallorca in Santa Ponsa, not far from Palma, this family house is pushed into a steep hillside, celebrating its Mediterranean proximity. The design responds to the site’s foremost demand, which is to open itself up to the seascape. A succession of terraces modulates the terrain from the street level to the bottom of the site, defining areas in which the house ties in with spaces outdoors: a sculpture garden, a dining loggia, a sun terrace, and a pool.

EXTENSION AND MODERNIZATION OF THE GERMAN SCHOOL OF LISBON. 2003 – INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION WITH PRE-SELECTION – 1st prize

When the German School of Lisbon was first built in 1961, architectural practice in Portugal was divided into Estado Novo architecture and a growing resistance to it, resulting from the 1st National Congress of Architecture in 1948, the creation of the Modern Architects Organization that same year, and the publication of the Popular Architecture Survey that took place between 1955 and 1961.

Vittra Telefonplan in Stockholm, Sweden by Rosan Bosch

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: Rosan Bosch

How do you create a school without any walls? In the 30 schools of the Swedish free school organisation Vittra there are no classes or classrooms – instead, the students are taught in groups according to level based on the school’s pedagogical principles of ’the wateringhole’, ’the show-off’, ’the cave’, ’the campfire’ and ’the laboratory’ – didactic approaches that create different types of learning and teaching situations. In Vittra, they do not believe in regular classes and the school organisation’s vision is to create an everyday for the individual students where individual development, a living cultural work and challenging learning environments are most important.

Marina House in Minas Gerais, Brazil by João Diniz Arquitetura

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Article source: João Diniz Arquitetura

It would be premature to affirm, or deny, the parallelism / Between the terrain and the arched roof / Meeting of the computer project with the industry. / The metallic roof-relief performs its functions / Creating intimacy, integration, lighting / Delineating the tower as part of the landscape. / The site topography defines the three internal levels / By proposing a ride to the backyard where / Landmarks are appreciated in different heights. / Centrifugal and centripetal is the triple relationship / Of nature, building and people.

Magdeburg in Germany by maxwan architects+urbanists

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Article source: maxwan architects+urbanists

Magdeburg, founded upon the Elbe River, has a history of scientific innovation. The scheme takes the existing bland, but quite functional campus and adds a series of gathering spaces. These linked spaces continue eastward to form the framework for the future development of a tech center, while also connecting to the historic harbor and the riverfront. This forms a car free spine that brings together diverse users to mingle in a series of mixed use spaces. Additionally, new pathways complete a previously broken link in the green network of the city. The signature element along the spine is a covered public forum that resides adjacent to the pedestrian underpass and is topped by a cinema and conference center.
